A House Divided Cannot Stand. Mathew 12:22-2822
“Then one was brought to Him who was demon-possessed, blind and mute; and He healed him, so that the [a]blind and mute man both spoke and saw. 23 And all the multitudes were amazed and said, “Could this be the Son of David?”24 Now when the Pharisees heard it they said, “This fellow does not cast out demons except but by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons.”25 But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. 26 If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand? 27 And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges. 28 But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you.”
As your guide in our current inquiry I want to let you know we are firmly in the zero phase. The zero phase is the seed phase. What seeds will you choose? Where will you plant them? When? How? WHY? In the growth process this phase is called CONFUSION.In the game analogy it is called OBJECTIVE or OBJECT.In the “tree analogy” this is called SEED.In the business cycle this is called DESIRED GOAL.In the Kripalu Yoga Transformation Process this is called BREATHE.In the grief process this is called DENIAL.In the “Four Phases of Creation in Kabbalah” this is called KETER (CROWN)In my personal process of managing my diabetes it is called CONFRONT.
Many different ways from which to view this 5 phase/step process. What is the value of knowing about and inquiring into this process? I will attempt to answer that with context and texture over the next several weeks.In my opinion, knowing about and. doing inquiry into this process may be priceless in the upcoming days, weeks and months.
All of you on my current mailing list are invited to all sessions I hold over the next 2 months. I encourage you to invite guests who you think would receive value. I anticipate the next few weeks to be tumultuous for a number of reasons. I am planning a trip down to South Florida to see family. My intention is to make sure to be able to do Sunday’s class every week. So, for the next 2 months we will take it week by week.
I am not asking for compensation for the next two months. I fully realize many may be struggling and unable or unwilling to commit during this time. However, I will ask that you write me up an assessment or “client review” of the experience you have had with the service I have been providing through the zoom sessions, the emails and the posts on my website. I would further ask that you grant me permission to publish your review in my website under the category of client reviews. There are a few client reviews already posted for you to review if you would like. And while I am not requiring payment for the next two months I will accept donations to support the work that Nedra and I are doing.
